Why is stretching so beneficial

It’s easy to forget to stretch. It’s often overlooked because the results are not as visible as lifting weights and squatting—or so you thought. Stretching can lead to better posture, fewer aches and pains and greater confidence.

“Stretching increases your blood flow and circulation for a healthier body and sends oxygen to your brain for a clearer mind.  Berger Chiropractic is now offering "doctor supervised" stretching. Unlike other places wouldn't you want a professional working on you?

Let Us Treat Your Pain from Auto Accidents in Deerfield Beach, FL

Let Us Treat Your Pain from Auto Accidents in Deerfield Beach, FL

A car accident can be a very scary situation. After the initial shock of the accident, the pain and doctor’s visits which follow can be more frightening than the accident itself. If you’re in pain as a result of one of the many auto accidents in Deerfield Beach, Fl our office may be able to help you. We can help treat your discomfort and aches with creative methods that will mitigate or even alleviate the problem. Our team at Berger Chiropractic and Wellness works towards your optimal health and comfort.

There’s nothing easy about car accidents, and back pain following an accident can grow in intensity and danger as the accident recedes into memory. The spinal cord is a complex system with twenty four bones which stack on top of one another. When one or more of these bones is damaged or misaligned, the others may encounter issues too. A misaligned vertebrae can even irritate your nerves, impairing your body’s ability to send messages throughout the nervous system. Simple back discomfort after a car accident can sometimes balloon into more serious issues within the rest of your body.

Auto accidents can also cause painful whiplash in Deerfield Beach, Fl. Whiplash is an injury which occurs when the soft tissues of the neck are damaged from a sudden jerking motion, such as sitting in a stopped car that is unexpectedly jerked forward by a rear-end collision.

Reducing Risk of Recurring Low Back Pain for Office Workers

Are you an office worker who has experienced low back pain in the past?  If so, you are at a significantly greater risk of future low back pain.  According to a one-year study of 669 healthy office workers, people who had previous episodes of low back pain were more likely to experience low back pain again.  The amount of recurring low back pain was also influenced by the frequency of work rest breaks as well as psychological stresses.  This study gives some clues as to how to avoid getting low back pain while at the office.

Here are some tips:

  • Take Frequent Desk Breaks. We are not talking about taking advantage of your employer and “shirking off” during the day for long periods of time. A quick break could simply be to stand up for a minute or two and stretch before returning to your work.
  • Reduce Workplace Stress. While some of this is out of your control, you can take some positive steps to reduce workplace stress. Speak up and ask for an extended deadline if the task needs it. Try to work out problems with coworkers respectfully and proactively.
  • Chiropractic Care. A qualified chiropractor can help you reduce low back pain when it happens and prevent it. Contact our office today for a no commitment consultation!

New Study Finds Obese Seniors Can Improve Disability with Diet and Exercise

According to a new U.S. study, seniors age 65-79 may be able to improve their disability and lessen fatigue if they start exercising more.  Plus, if they cut calories, they may achieve overall improved health.  Researchers at Wake Forest School of Medicine in North Carolina conducted the study. The experiment involved 180 obese senior adults from the age of 65 to 79 years-old.  Each participant was randomly given a 20-week task: Regular aerobic activity, or regular aerobic activity combined with cutting calories.  All 180 seniors focused on treadmill exercises at least 4 days per week. However, the group assigned to cut calories also were instructed to eat at least 250-600 fewer calories per day, as well.  According to the study, the group who exercised and cut calories was able to increase their exercise capacity (the body’s ability to supply oxygen to muscles during longer exercise sessions) by 14-16%.  Meanwhile, the seniors who only focused on aerobic exercise increased their exercise capacity by nearly 8%.  The researchers concluded, in general, people who cut a moderate amount of calories from their diets and complete regular aerobic workouts will see good results.  You don’t have to slash calories drastically, because this is difficult to keep up.  Best of all, anyone at any stage of life, even people who are both obese and elderly, will see health benefits from getting active and eating less.

Even Bad Cholesterol in the Moderate Range Can Spell Early Death

Adults who don't keep their "bad cholesterol" numbers at bay, who are otherwise healthy, are far likelier to die early deaths from cardiovascular issues than those who keep their cholesterol in the "good" range.  A recent study from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center looked at data from over 36,000 patients with zero past incidences of diabetes or heart disease, including a low risk for heart attacks and strokes.  However, these patients had some level of LDL-C ("bad cholesterol" that can build up in your blood vessels), although it was low enough not to warrant prescription cholesterol medication, called statins.  The follow-up period for the study was around 27 years. During this time, over 1,000 people died from cardiovascular disease, while nearly 600 died from heart disease.  According to the study, the higher the person's LDL-C levels (ranging from 100 to 190 mg/DL), the higher their risk of dying from cardiovascular disease or complications.  Usually, physicians don't prescribe statins unless the patient's cholesterol level reaches a threshold of 190 mg/DL.  This means even moderate levels of LDL-C can put you at risk.  Researchers say that the biggest takeaway from the study data is that a low risk for 10-year cardiovascular events does not mean the risk posed by higher LDL-C levels is wiped out.
